The K1USN Radio Club will activate W1BSA for the Jamboree On The Air on October 20-21, 2007 at the Watson Research Center Library on Quincy Avenue in Braintree.
The hours of operation will be 10 AM – 4 PM Saturday and Noon – 4 PM Sunday. We currently have two scout groups scheduled to attend. The cub pack from Bridgewater is scheduled for 1 – 3 PM Sunday and the Webelos den from Pack 73, Weymouth will arrive on Saturday at noon.
There will be a special presentation ceremony on Saturday to honor the family of a local Braintree resident who was the first woman telegrapher for the railroad station at Braintree in 1862.
We hope to once again have representatives from the Braintree Emergency Management (BEMA) participating with us.
This event is open to all and we especially want to encourage any local scout groups or individuals to attend.
JOTA is an international Scouting event to promote friendship around the world through Amateur Radio. It engages Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Guides in an annual international Amateur Radio operating event each October.
